Hero


Hero – 2000-1  collaboration with visual artist – Onno

You, you are my hero!
The main character in every story, film or play.
Immortalized forever in every single word we say.
For your acts of courage and noble qualities.
We have a since of continuation and linear history.
It’s always there in the back of our minds.
To look up to courage brutal or kind
Good guy, bad guy does not matter?
We need a figure for our future to flatter
So we feed the children to remember the name
Of the ones who are doing the killing game
Bumping and grinding to keep it in line
Clawing and grabbing at my tail bone and spine.
Well, that’s it, baby!
I had no teen-age life
While you float around in the convenience of death
What are we supposed to draw on?
The manuscripts.
The legend.
The documents.
The costume?
We have to compose the mess that your glittering moments
of macho mania leave carelessly behind.
So we shine a light into your face and find a sign
And see you, you are my hero.
